Flamboyant time and up Sixth Street
Red Blossoms and green branches meet
A picture of beauty so colourful and rare
From Baker to North Avenue indescribably fair.
In other streets and gardens too
Flamboyants flame in their reddest hue
Rhodes Avenue too can show with pride
White, yellow and orange Frangipani side by side.
A feast of colour to gladden the eyes
Nature's gift to those who prize
Her beauties which never fail to arouse
Pride in this beautiful land of ours.
